Famous quotes containing the word rest:

    I realized how for all of us who came of age in the late sixties and early seventies the war was a defining experience. You went or you didn’t, but the fact of it and the decisions it forced us to make marked us for the rest of our lives, just as the depression and World War II had marked my parents.
    Linda Grant (b. 1949)

    Lyke as a huntsman after weary chace,
    Seeing the game from him escapt away,
    Sits downe to rest him in some shady place,
    Edmund Spenser (1552?–1599)
